Wed 11-18-2020

(Storm Lake)-- Buena Vista University has received nearly $75,000 in grant funds to purchase software, devices and internet connectivity to facilitate online learning. The grant is from the Iowa Department of Education and the Governor's Emergency Education Relief program funded through federal CARES Act money.

BVU is also using the funding to increase bandwidth for remote learners and to increase the number of licenses it has for Zoom instruction.

Officials at BVU say the additional resources are vital as students return to their homes to finish the semester online to help mitigate spread of the coronavirus.
